Manihi began tutoring Joey in the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year. Since then, Brent says, “I see great improvement with Joey. Joey’s teachers and counselor’s also see it.”
Brent has been so happy he has already given out our number to several of his friends. Manihi Kontnik was Joey’s tutor and Brent said, “Manihi is a great tutor. She is teaching my son how to be a better student. Joey’s grade proves it.”
“This has been a great experience. Thank you,” Brent said.
Joey attends Alta Loma High School in Rancho Cucamonga.
Thank you Brent and Joey for choosing The Tutoring Solution.
I have been tutoring Susan’s son, Connor since the Summer of 2011 and recently she confided in me how happy she was with the tutoring we have provided.
According to Susan, Connor has received “better grades.”
She said she would certainly refer us to others because the “price is good and Connor has benefited from his tutoring. Zeb is always “on time, nice to the student and patient.”
It’s been a pleasure working with Connor to improve his mathematical abilities and help him when he has problems with homework.
Connor attends Townshend Junior High School in Chino Hills, CA.

Last Summer I gave a presentation to a group of volunteer tutors from School on Wheels titled How to Motivate the Unmotivated. School on Wheels has provided volunteer tutoring for homeless students in the Los Angeles area since 1993 and I received a lot of positive feedback from those who attended and received the following email several weeks ago to ask if I was interested in running an online webinar to which I agreed.
It sounds like things are going really well for your company. Your workshop for our tutors was very popular last year. I’m wondering if there’s any chance you would be interested in doing another for us, but this time in an online format. We are offering online webinars, and I would love to offer your strategies and professional expertise to more of our tutors. If this interests you, please let me know and we can discuss times. I could come to your office to run the workshop in order to make it convenient for you.

The presentation is set to take place on Monday at 7 PM and they already have a large list of volunteer tutors interested in attending. I am excited for the opportunity and am always happy to share my time and expertise with those interested in helping others. School on Wheels is a great organization and I encourage all of you to visit their website to find out more about them.
It’s a new year and we’re very optimistic about what 2012 has in-store for The Tutoring Solution and the community we serve.
We hired our first employee, Manihi Kontnik. Manihi has been tutoring for us since the beginning of this school year and has done a fantastic job. Currently, she is tutoring a student in Rancho Cucamonga who attends Alta Loma High School and another student in Chino who attends Oxford Preparatory Academy. Her passion and devotion towards education along with her work ethic and organizational skills have made her the perfect candidate to assist in developing and enhancing our reputation in the community. For her first month she spent time developing and designing our first scholarship, implementing new policies and procedures for our tutors and updating our blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
On Saturday, January 21 we set up a booth at My Kid’s Dentist in Chino for a Community BBQ. We had a great time setting up our booth with games and gave away free pencils to all the kids who came by our booth. We also met representatives from The Frame, a hair salon located next to My Kid’s Dentist, and Wells Fargo.
On Monday, January 6 I will be conducting a webinar for School on Wheels. School on Wheels provides volunteer tutoring services for homeless students across Southern California. During the webinar, I will be discussing motivation and providing tips on how to motivate students. If you’re interested in participating or listening to the webinar let me know and I will be sure to set you up with the appropriate information.
We received our first call today for SAT Tutoring in 2012, which means the next round of SAT’s is set to begin. If you know any High School Junior’s, we can help prepare them for the SAT’s.
Already, in 2012, we are tutoring students in Chino Hills, Chino, Eastvale, Mira Loma, Alta Loma, Ontario, Corona, Norco, and Rancho Cucamonga. We tutor students in AP US History, Spanish III Honors, Spanish I, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Writing, SAT Test Prep, Algebra, Chemistry, Geometry, Algebra II, Biology, English, Astrology, Anatomy, Social Studies and several other subjects.
If you feel your student’s grades could have been higher last year or want to give them an opportunity to excel please contact us. We have a great staff of passionate educators who want to help your student(s) succeed.
In 2011, we helped Mahela prepare for the SAT’s. He was not satisfied with his SAT score and wanted to see improvement so he called us. After working with Mahela for several weeks he took the SAT Test again six months later and saw a 180 point improvement in his SAT score.
Mahela attends Roosevelt High School in Eastvale, CA.
We helped Mahela improve his SAT Test Score. We can tutor students all across Southern California, but most of our students are in Chino, Chino Hills, Corona, Eastvale, Norco, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Alta Loma, and surrounding cities.
Find out how we can help your student prepare for the SAT’s. Call Zeb Welborn for more info at (909) 973 – 9089.

Preparing to take the SAT or ACT can take a lot of time and more than a little money: aside from the materials that students may need to study for the exam, some parents prefer to enroll their children into preparatory classes or one-on-one tutoring sessions. But for some colleges and universities, entrance exams like the SAT and ACT aren’t required—and it’s a development that could change the way students get ready for college.
Some schools are moving away from college entrance exams in order to take a student’s entire high school experience into account: grades and the complexity of course loads, as well as extracurricular activities are more important to schools. A growing list of competitive colleges and universities is moving away from standardized testing and taking a “holistic” approach to evaluating potential students and to increase diversity on campuses. But what will that mean for students trying to make it into their choice schools?
A student’s chances of landing an acceptance letter to the school of her choice doesn’t—and shouldn’t—begin with her SAT or ACT score. Test-optional schools are concentrating on how students perform in their classes, as well as the difficulty of the classes they take. Students who enroll in advanced or college-prep courses in high school tend to be better prepared for more rigorous college coursework. Those classes not only prepare students for the challenges they’ll face in college, but it makes students more attractive to colleges and universities. Signing up for after-school assistance or meeting with a tutor can help students perform well in their tougher classes; you can also study with friends or use online education programs to work in a self-guided environment.
Schools still view students who participate in various extracurricular activities as “well-rounded” and easily adaptable, two attributes that can make you a more attractive potential student. You should choose after-school activities that you enjoy—drama, music, sports—but you should also consider volunteering for charities and nonprofit organizations in your area. Volunteering not only gives you a feeling of ownership in your community, it can also give you the skills you need to participate in college organizations once you get to college.
There are hundreds of schools who no longer require college entrance exams, but taking the SAT or ACT is still a good idea. Most schools still require it, and taking the test will give you an idea of your strengths and weaknesses in various subjects. Taking one of the tests more than once can help you gauge your progress in the subjects that give you the most trouble; it can also help you improve your score. College entrance exams might not provide a full representation of who you are as a student, but they can still help colleges and universities determine which students will do best academically—so study, seek the help of a tutor if you need it, and do your best.
The trend of test-optional colleges and universities is slowly gaining popularity—and as schools focus on a student’s whole history, college entrance exams may become less important. Still, it’s essential that students planning for college prepare themselves to take a college entrance exam. Even with a busy academic and extracurricular schedule, spending time on your future can be valuable—and that could mean studying for the SAT or ACT.
